Community Legal Centres play a vital role in helping New Zealanders avoid legal problems or resolve those problems through education & legal representation. There has recently been a significant increase to Community Law Centres’ funding which has been made permanent in the Wellbeing Budget for this year. This was the first increase since the previous National Government froze core funding seven years ago. Additional funding will allow the 24 active Community Law Centres to expand on their work, as well as to provide fair and accessible legal support for New Zealanders. Louis talked with Green Party MP, Golriz Ghahraman, on the importance of these community law centres getting more recognition for their services to Aotearoa’s most vulnerable communities.
